Edinson Cavani

SSC Napoli

• The top scorer in the Coppa Italia with five goals as SSC Napoli won their first major trophy in 22 years. His penalty opened the scoring in the final, a 2-0 triumph against Juventus that subjected the Turin club to their only defeat of the season.

• Found the net 33 times in all club competitions during the 2011/12 campaign, five strikes in the UEFA Champions League supplementing a 23-goal tally in Serie A that placed him equal third in the scoring charts.
